Connect Windchill to your ECAD system

The ECAD Windchill integration platform

The ECAD-PLM integration solution integrate2 was developed to enable an integrated approach that connects your ECAD design workflow with the entire product design ecosystem. This provides the opportunity for cross-discipline collaboration between design teams and combines mechanical, electronic, embedded software data and electronic design data on a single platform. 

With integrate2, ECAD design data can be managed more consistently, improving efficiency, agility and process security. In addition, designers have a complete view of their product data and can now access, publish and synchronize information without leaving their familiar ECAD design environment. The integrated approach also allows release dates, Achieve cost, product quality, and feature set goals. The ECAD employee initially does not notice anything about the PLM, but Windchill nevertheless controls the data and information flows in the background.

Main features of XPLM integrate2 – ECAD Windchill integration

Connect ECAD and Windchill

XPLM integrate2, the ECAD Windchill integration platform, helps you to optimize your business processes by connecting your ECAD system with PTC Windchill and thus creating a holistic, interdisciplinary product data management in one system. This enables ECAD-relevant system and process data to be edited and controlled directly in PTC Windchill. This saves you time and eliminates sources of error. In addition, integrate2 offers a tailor-made solution for your company requirements due to its flexible adaptability.

  • Launch new projects with a centrally managed template
  • Full approval of projects, including automatic creation of manufacturing and documentation outputs in PLM
  • Automatically populate parameters in the drawing frame
  • Creation of the parts list including design variants
  • BOM comparison when saving the design project
  • Check in and check out
  • Bi-directional synchronization of library content
  • Extensive search functions
  • Easy linking of data with other PLM objects
  • Solid audit trail via status log
